Haskell donates computers to Big Brothers Big Sisters

It didn’t take much computing for the employees of The Haskell Co. to help their friends at big Brothers Big Sisters. The Riverside-based firm, which already supports the nonprofit organization through a mentoring program, wanted to do more. So last month, Haskell donated computers to Big Brothers Big Sisters for use by organization employees.
“At Haskell, we focus on philanthropic and community service and we strongly believe in the mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters,” said Paul Tyler, president of Haskell’s Commercial Group, former board chair and current board member of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Florida. “We try to do all we can to show our support, whether it be through volunteering our time or donating equipment.”
For the past few years, Haskell employees have been participating in a Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring program called “Beyond School Walls.” The workplace mentoring partnership paired 54 Haskell employees with 53 students from Andrew Jackson High School for one-on-one mentoring.
Haskell will continue to show support of Big Brothers Big Sisters and move forward with mentoring the students at Andrew Jackson High School for another year when the students, who were 10th graders at the beginning of the program, will graduate from high school.
